Release of e-mail increases pressure on James Murdoch
The release of a June 7, 2008, e-mail from former News of the World editor Colin Myler is increasing the pressure on News Corp. deputy chief operating office James Murdoch, Bloomberg reported. The e-mail, sent from Myler to Murdoch, provides evidence that phone hacking at the tabloid went beyond a single rogue reporter.
Murdoch said he didn't read the entire e-mail because it was sent on a Saturday when he wasn't in the office, the Bloomberg report said.
In testimony before U.K. lawmakers on November, Murdoch said he was not fully briefed on the extent of the hacking. He is the son of News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch. (Source: Bloomberg, Dec. 14, 2011.)
